lyrics

I can play a possum
I can sink to the bottom
Of the sea
Even though I can’t breath
I’m perfectly at peace

No one lies like a Christian
On hypocritical missions
To the East
Down on crooked knees
Even God agrees

Now everyone is underdressed
With garland thrown around our necks
The captain came from overseas
To tout his naval victories

I can sign a petition
I can wear my religion
On my sleeve
I’ll barricade my dreams
To keep my team in the lead

Now everyone is underdressed
With garland thrown around our necks
The captain came from overseas
To flout his naval victories
